“Palat ke aaungi shakhon pe khushbuye lekar, khija ki jad mein hoon, mausam jara badal ne de (I will come back with fresh fragrance…let the season change a bit),” Devendra Fadnvais’ wife Amruta tweeted from her handle on Tuesday night.

In the farewell message, Amruta Fadnavis also thanked the people of Maharashtra for five memorable years. “Thanks, Mah for memorable 5yrs as your Wahini. The love showered by you will always make me nostalgic! I tried to do my role to best of my abilities with desire only to serve & make a positive diff,” Amruta Fadnavis said.

Incidentally, “Mee Parat Yein” (I will come back) was her husband’s refrain during the Assembly poll campaign, which came in for ridicule later when government formation proved to be far from a cake-walk for the BJP.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had on Tuesday quit, hours after Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar submitted his resignation. The resignations came barely 80 hours after they were sworn in on November 23.

Maharashtra will now have a Shiv Sena Chief Minister after 20 years but a Thackeray as Chief Minister for the first time with Uddhav Thackeray set to lead the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress alliance government, called Maha Vikas Aghadi.
